Best Heal Care Stocks To Own For 2021: PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon US Trs ETF (ZROZ)

PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon U.S. Treasury Index ETF, formerly PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon U.S. Treasury Index Fund ETF, is an exchange-traded fund. The Fund seeks to provide total return that closely corresponds to the total return of The BofA Merrill Lynch Long US Treasury Principal STRIPS Index (the Index) by investing at least 80% of its total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) in the component securities of the Index. The Index is an unmanaged index consisting of long-maturity separate trading of registered interest and principal of securities representing the final principal payment of the United States Treasury bonds with at least $1 billion in outstanding face value and a remaining term to final maturity greater than or equal to 25 years. It invests in a representative sample of securities included in the Index that collectively has an investment profile similar to the Index. The Fund’s investment advisor is Pacific Investment Management Company LLC.
Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    My preferred fund here is Vanguard Extended Duration Treasury ETF (NYSE: EDV), which owns a basket of long-term, zero-coupon bonds. It’s better-known, larger, and, most important, cheaper than its competitor PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon U.S. Treasury Index Exchange-Traded Fund (NYSE: ZROZ). Both are poised to rally if deflation hits and the stock market falls. But EDV is cheaper, at only 0.07% expense ratio, compared with ZROZ’s 0.15%, and so it’s the one that makes the cut.

Top 5 Safest Stocks To Buy For 2019

In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change. Atlantic Gold (OTCPK:SPVEF) was one such idea I highlighted last year, as the company was set to transform itself into Canada’s newest junior gold producer. The stock has since moved from US$0.60 to US$1.40 and the re-rating I expect has nearly come to fruition. A company with a similar profile that I’ve had my eye on was Harte Gold (OTCPK:HRTFF), but the stock got well ahead of itself earlier this year and I exited my position. Since that time the stock has spent the last six months consolidating and finally looks it may be ready to resume the new uptrend it began earlier this year.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Moser: In the spirit of the Ryder Cup, which starts next Friday, looking a little bit more closely at Callaway Golf (NYSE:ELY), ticker ELY. For the most part, I’ve eschewed investing in golf altogether, with my experience in the business. It’s just not the highest margin game. I’m actually more interested in Callaway’s minority stake in Top Golf, which is the driving range concept that marries hitting golf balls with the social dynamic, as well. You meet your friends there for food, drinks, they have sports on TV and whatnot. There are around 41 Top Golfs today. The goal is to open another 100 here domestically, as well as 100 internationally. Already very profitable, and Callaway has about a 14% minority stake in it. They intend to continue investing in it. It’s got my attention.

The deal to merge GE transportation with Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies (NYSE:WAB), or Wabtec, is somewhat complicated, but in general can be seen as a near-term positive for shareholders.

Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), Paratek Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:PRTK), and Hortonworks (NASDAQ:HDP) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

Clean energy stocks are still the best energy stocks to own right now, despite President Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. In fact, renewable energy production will see over 100% growth by 2025.

To help investors find the right renewable energy stocks, we’re giving Money Morning readers our top clean energy stock pick today…

Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says the United States might be pulling out of the climate agreement, but that won’t stop renewable energy from being crucial to meeting the global demand for energy.

Moors says the climate agreement was non-binding and voluntary, so the United States’ decision to leave it won’t change much. A more significant development is President Trump’s attempt to end the “Clean Power Plan,” an Obama-era initiative to promote clean energy, because it’s currently America’s policy instead of a non-binding agreement.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Pipeline giant ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) is a one-of-a-kind investment opportunity these days. Of the 500 companies in the S&P 500, it’s the only one that meets five distinct characteristics of size, financial strength, earnings growth, dividend growth, and yield. That unique combination makes it an excellent choice for investors who want both high growth and a high yield.

    However, you could happily add ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE:OKE) without facing any of those issues, because this midstream company is structured as a regular corporation. Although ONEOK’s yield of 4.8% is a little lower than Enterprise’s, it shares a lot of the partnership’s most desirable traits.
